George Hicks[edit]

George Hicks was a reporter for NBC Blue aboard the Ancon during the D-Day landings. He supposedly had a 75-pound recording device strapped on him and recorded a 13.5 minute segment that included the convoy being attacked by a Luftwaffe fighter that was shot down during this segment. I don't know if this is something that would included in the segment while the Ancon was in the Atlantic, as an external reference item by itself, or somewhere else within the article. One place to listen to this is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnomrhP6sVs - it should also be somewhere on Archive.org, but I haven't been able to find it after a quick search.
